I’ve been putting this review off as long as possible, simply because I wanted to determine the best possible results and thought it may take some time. With the marketing I have seen by the brand, I truly figured that I would have something interesting to report in regards to the new CortiSlim line.
I have a small “pouch” of abdominal fat that I know I could deal with on my own BUT I have two toddlers in tow, one hell of a hectic schedule, no gym budget at the moment, I function on too little sleep to dig into that to wake up earlier than my husband for running (I’ve tried) and I could use a bit of help. I have two dogs and two babies under foot while attempting to work out at home so I definitely have to try to maximize the benefits of any work out time that I get. An additional push until such time as my schedule calms slightly would be a welcome help so, when given the opportunity to review these types of products at no charge, I jump on them whenever I can. My review for CortiSlim Burn came as a result of such an offer and I didn’t have to pay for my products.
I love the idea of a supplement that comes as part of a healthy lifestyle choice and not a miracle pill, which the makers are very clear in the fact that CortiSlim is to be used in conjunction with your own healthy choices. I had no issue with that, as we eat a well-balanced, healthy, low-fat, lean protein diet so I just added the pills and made certain to refrain from “cheating” with salty or sweet snacks. I actually found myself more encouraged by the fact that they were selling realistic expectations, as well as essentially forcing personal goals as part of their package.
You’re supposed to take two of the green pills once a day to start, eventually working your way up to 6 pills per day, and then two of the red pills prior to your daily exercise routine. Each bottle contains green tea, caffeine and chromium and these things are all known for assisting with weight loss, although I’m not sure of the levels of each within the formula because they’re not all stated. I can’t exactly gauge how effective they may be, how they compare to regular diet choices or how this brand might stack up against similar products on the market. Green tea and caffeine will help boost metabolism and chromium can assist with appetite suppression, although that’s never been an issue for me, so they all seem to make sense as part of an overall weight management solution. That being said, I also ingest them on a regular basis without this supplement so I’m not certain it had any effect on me. Apparently, research shows that study groups taking CortiSlim burn 35% more fat than those who do not. I didn’t notice a massive energy spike although, when I upped my dosage to the maximum recommended intake, I ended up feeling shaky and exhausted after a few hours. I think I must have had crash-like effects, or I am too sensitive to the caffeine so I reduced it down to my starting dose. I also found that I had difficulty sleeping on the nights when I took the supplement later on in the day; I suppose this is due to the inclusion of time release caffeine. It’s possible others may have better results than I have achieved if they can take the maximum recommended dosage but that was not possible for me.
I was a bit surprised to note that there aren’t really any ingredients that help with cortisol levels or stress management so I’m not sure why the product name directly pertains to something that isn’t targeted. I am not exactly a fan of the branding as a result.
All of this being said, I’m glad I didn’t invest a lot into this product because I haven’t lost more than a pound in the last few weeks. I fluctuate by that much all the time though. I haven’t lost any inches either and my tummy looks just about the same. I can say that, perhaps, I look a little less bloated but not noticeably enough that before and after pictures would demonstrate any results of value. Should you wish to check out the CoriSlim product line here, as I do believe it will probably help you if one of your main issues is appetite suppression, then you can find the website here.
